United World Rebellion – Chapter One reignites the youthful energy and blistering sound that SKID ROW is recognized for around the world. “That sound and energy is what resonates with people and knocks them on their ass,” says drummer Rob Hammersmith. “We had a lot of great ideas to work with, so we’re all really excited about this new music.”

SKID ROW’s rebellious tunes hit the big time in the late1980’s. However, after several top ten singles, gold and multi-platinum sales, No. 1 Billboard charting tracks and more, the band split in 1996. In 2000, to the delight of fans everywhere, SKID ROW reformed and returned to the stage to open for Kiss. They then released two new musical offerings in the form of 2003’s ThickSkin and 2006’s Revolutions Per Minute with new singer Johnny Solinger out front. Seven years later, the band is back again with new music, ready to take over in the new age of heavy metal.

“When we put the band back together, we needed to reintroduce SKID ROW as relevant without relying too much on past success,” explains bassist Rachel Bolan. “We sunk our heart and soul into it, letting people know we weren’t doing it for lack of nothing better to do.”

For the new EP series, Rachel Bolan and guitarist Snake Sabo tapped again into the potent songwriting collaboration that built SKID ROW. Sabo says they were eagerly up to the challenge. “We seem to be at our best when we’re faced with adversity. It’s us against the world again — and by us I mean the band and the fans who stick with us and carry the SKID ROW torch without fail.”

“The idea [of releasing EPs] really appealed to me,” adds Bolan, “Especially with the constantly changing musical climate. I like the idea of a steady flow of new music, as opposed to releasing a full-length album then riding it for the next two years.”

And although striving to reintroduce themselves and try something different, these boys are still strong in their roots. They got older, but SKID ROW never really grew up. United World Rebellion is still the youth gone wild, their musical spark still burning gasoline.

“I will always be that 16-year-old kid in front of the mirror, pretending to be Ace Frehley or Michael Schenker,” admits guitarist Snake Sabo. “It’s still about writing a great song with your friend, praying it connects with someone. That has never left me. That willfulness will always exist, and there’s so much left to say!”

Their rebellion continues. United World Rebellion starts now.

Lordi Announces New Album:To Beast Or Not To Beast Out March 19th

“To Beast Or Not To Beast” was recorded earlier this fall at WireWorld Studio in Nashville, TN with renowned producer Michael Wagener (METALLICA, OZZY OSBOURNE, SKID ROW, DOKKEN, RAVEN, MEGADETH). The CD will mark the recording debut of LORDI’s new members, keyboardist Hella (replacing Awa) and drummer Mana (replacing Otus).

“The road to this album has truly been paved by hardships,” Mr. Lordi says. “However, the new line-up of the band has given us new and fresh touch and an energetic edge to the recording process, and to the album itself.”

“The album cover painting is actually a part of a larger picture. The original artwork had this vintage- styled lady holding a horned skull, which, however, was not the main point of the art piece. 
There was something not quite right with the setting, so I made experiments with various versions and framings. Album title was Upgradead at that point in time, and the painting was done with that title in mind.”


“But now, with a changed concept of the artwork, the title did not seem to fit anymore. We did not consider it an A-class name either. Our guitarist Amen came up with the final title, which we felt suitable and perfect both for the cover artwork and the album.”

– Mr. Lordi
